History of copper mining in Utah , ,irt8 back in 1SG8. when Col. Enos v i Wall came to Utah, after various ; ventures in mining and trading in ; ,hcr states and territories of the in- :! iprmountatn west. However, after a l brief venture at that time in gold min- ' inr he left this sort of work and did ;' m' -..r, tn it until 1885. At that Smc he engaged in mining at Mercur, f ' nJ1 July. 1S87. he went to Bingham. Here he "observed by the outcroppings on the hillsides and the copper, stain '' of ti,e rocks, and judged there was a i' Isrge amount of copper in the hills. ! 0n assay, this proved to show 3 per cent cop"per for a length of 000 feet, ue found an old tunnel that had been driven in this deposit for a distance ! 0 so feet. Going to the end of this be broke off a sample. Kc obtained an assay of 2.-1 per cent copper and a panning sample showed that a con centrate of 30 to 40 per cent copper .' could be obtained. Stakes Out Claims, j He learned from the recorder that a large part of this land had once been slaked in claims but that they had been abandoned. lie slaked two claims. He saw that other prospectors had ! found traces of copper in other parts of the hill, hut had abandoned it as not being worth while, aa the per cent of copper was too low to be profitably milled. Not having enough money to carry out the plans he had for work ing the property, he worked his as- sessments each year until he had niade m oney in other deals to pro ' mote the development of this holding. ! He held to his faith in the property I ,.' and hoped some day to be able to build I m 1 a mill and work the property Buf-1 fldently to justify his faith in the; ability to make money from low grade j )U.'. 1 copper ore. I '. When the success of the Highland! it!-' Boy mine was assured, he had manag-, cd to acquire title to about 200 acres i ' and had done v20,000 worth of oxplor-1 ation work, represented by about 3, 250 feet of tunnels, drifts and cross- aaE ' cuts' r- L,, DeLaMar Obtains Option. J At this time Captain Joseph R. De ( H: LaMar, who had known Col, Wall at p. Jlercur, obtained a six months' option g on the Wall holdings for $375,000. A test was made of ore that was taken m from the Mackintosh tunnel. This j M test yielded a concentrate containing; m ' 28 to 33 per cent copper on an ore j M fi assaying 2 per cent, the recovery be-; ing 60 to C2 per cent No dealings ( J were made by De LaMar, as he tliought ' S the recovery discouraging. He was 1 also intimidated by the weakness of the copper market. Three years later De LaMar again asked for an option. This he got and exhaustive tests were made of the property. In these tests Robert C. (Gommell and Daniel C. Jnckllng had a prominent part. These tests prov ed very encouraging and De LaMar asked for an extension of time on his option and stated that lie was prepar ed to undertake development work providing he could obtain a larger in terest. Wall said he could have three quarters of the property for $750,000 and this ended the negotiations. ' New Deal Made. At this time a man named Clement was made manager for the De LaMar interests. Then followed the making of a now deal with Wall and very ex tensive development work on the prop erty. The old mill at tho bottom of tho canyon, the Rogers mill, was re paired and put in condition for mak ing tho mill tests. This work was done by Jackling. Money for building a railroad from the mine to the mill was obtained by Clomenl, through London business influences. Following experiments with the ore, to determine its aamonabllity to ordi nary concentration, Mr. Jackling made a report to De LaMar. In this report he stated that an ostim.-ifp r,f 95 nnn . 000 tons, in addition to that already developed was conservative as a pos sibility for further development. Then followed a period of business dealings and dickerings on the part of Wall. Do LaMar and others concerned until it looked as though the entire plan for development would fall through for lack of the immense sum ; of money that would be required be fore the copper mines would be a pay ing investment. In spite of tho favor- ; able report of Jackling, De LaMar fin ally dropped out, through the machlna- i tions of Wall. Jackling Obtains Interest. Jackling comes to the front at this ' time. His Initiative and business abil ity, as well ap his far-sightedness gave j ihini the courage to "set on tho inside" : jof what was to eventually prove a big j thins for him and place him at the top with other copper producers of the I world. j Soon after the examination men- J Uioncd above, Jackling resigned from . the employ of De LaMar and went into 1 other mining vontures. r ollowing scv- :eral deals for other men, he returned I to Salt Lake and, having interested others in tho Wall property at Bing I ham, he saw Wall and asked for an opt ion on the property. This he did not get. Wall was finally persuaded ' ! to come to terms when William S. Mc- . Cornick, of McCornlck &. Co., bankers, , in Salt Lake, persuaded him to mako , terms with Jackling. Jackling look . the option 'to his Colorado friends, and , after exhaustive tcBts and report3," the Utah Copper company came Into being on June -1, 1S03. Begins Production. Then followed building of mills and preparations for production. From that time to 1917 the mine has yielded C7.220.700 tons of ore. averaging 1.428 per cent copper, producing 3.11S.385 tons of concentrates, averaging 19. SI per cent and containing 017.7S5 tons or copper. This has enabled the com pany to pay $75,770, 8S2 in dividends and accumulate a working capital of $48,293,528.

ENGLISH LUTHERAN ISOGflTJTlllB The EMm English Lutheran church, corner of Jefferson avenue and Twenty-third street, was organized in this city in 1S89. At the beginning of last year the congregation voted unanim ously to carry on the work in the Eng lish language exclusively. This mark ed a new epoch in Lutheranism in Og den, since no English Lutheran church had heretofore oxiBtcd in the city. The change has given opportunity for .Lu therans of all nationalities to affiliate with a church of their faith and has widened considerably the scope of ac tivity. H The congregation has an active Sunday school and bible class depart ment which holds Its regular sessions every Sunday forenoon at 10 o'clock. Several church organizations have been organized within tho congrega tion and all are doing splendid work. The oldest of theso organizations is the ladies' Aid society, which has been of groat help financially and oth erwise to the work at large. The Lu ther league, which comprises the young folks of the congregation. meets once a month when programs are given. The Dorcas Young ladies jlH society Is a sewing club in Which the young ladles prepare articles which fcH are sold at their annual bazaar in the fall of the year. The Lutheran Broth- 'IH erhood comprises the men of Uje ',H church. This organization is a loca! 'jH branch of the Lutheran BrotherhoQd ilH of America. Its motto, "For Hone, fH Church and Country." explains the pur- IliH pose of the organization, iH ! The work has progressed favorably during the past few years and the congregation is looking forward for ',H still greater growth in membership 'H and influence for good with the growth ,H of our beautiful and prospering "gate Way" city of the intermountain coun- try. Since September, 1917, Revereu'l ''H Arthur E. Olson has been the pastor.

T ' unsurpassed in the intermountain country. It is chief among the wonders of Utah, '1 U climbing the great peaks of the Oquirrh mountains, bringing to view the great Salt . Lake, a large area of agricultural region, the extensive mining operations of the Utah ' Copper Mining company and showing the great mills that convert the ore into metal. JT In a comparatively short time this railroad carries one from Salt Lake City along the g) 'H it. ,v great artery of industry of the state. Over this road is conveyed each day thousands IJM s 'v of tons of ore and other freight. In the construction of the road the greatest engineer- ' ) ' ing feats of the west were accomplished and trains pass along as easily as they would ) ' J encounter a prairie section of country, made possible by the huge engines made es- pecially for this road- ' & . From the Bingham depot a splendid view is afforded of the great mountain of copper 'H ore that is being eaten away by the Utah Copper company. On its side can be seen i )(. twenty-seven terraces or levels, up and down which ore trains tug and puff and ' 1 twenty-two steam shovels are at work, gouging out the mountain side. Besides this, ) there are thousands of men at work drlling and blasting, running the trains and steam Q lll shovels, and at other occupations. From this mine more than 40,000 tons of ore a -v day are sent to the market. At the same time an excellent view of the mines in Carr . , IE rjH 5 Fork and Upper Bingham can be obtained.
